Bowers hit two free throws early in the third quarter before Armorel reeled off six straight points to make the score 26-22 Bay. Bowers followed her missed shot grabbing the rebound and scoring and then hit one of two free throws to make it 29-22 Lady 'Jackets. Ferguson hit a jumper right before the buzzer to give Bay a 31-26 lead headed to the fourth quarter.
